Great food slooooow service

The tostada breakfast was delicious and came quickly but it took quite some time before we could get the attention of a server who, although not our server, did graciously take our order. The food is worth a return

Very fun place to spend and evening. I visited the Mad Hatter twice during my most recent trip to DC. Both nights (Wednesday and Thursday nights) the place was jumping. The bartenders were efficient at best and somewhat rude at worst. Thursday night there was a VERY young crowd, mostly recent college graduates and it was very loud.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is a great neighborhood establishment, with good comfort food. The appetizers were excellent, and served promptly. The salads were fresh and had the right amount of dressing. The entrees were well prepared, and not overdone. The serving sizes are average. You will leave satisfied but not overstuffed. The value is outstanding -... More

It has a lovely night scene, with some amazing drinks. But the brunch is great ! I have been to Mad Hatter only at nights and to see it transform into this quiet little place for brunches was awesome.

Went on a Friday night for dinner. Bar area was pretty busy with 25-30 something professionals drinking happy hour special drinks. Was carded out door which gave the impression that it was more of a bar scene then a restaurant...We waited 5 minutes to be seated while the hostess was in the restroom. The tables past the bar were not... More

Visited Mad Hatter for happy hour with some former colleagues. Service was kind of slow, but in the restaurant's defense, it was busy. Crowded bar. We expected more character and fun in a place of that name. The only thing that differentiated it from another DC bar were several Alice in Wonderland items high on the wall. We really thought...

I went with a group that had a pre-arranged menu set up, so maybe that was part of it. But I paid $30 for a burger and fries with salad and dessert. For that price, the burger should have been at least what the menu said it was -- a 10-ounce patty. Not even close, and nothing special for taste.... More

Four of us stopped in as we made our way through several bars on Conn. They had a frozen mango-margherita on happy hour special - delish. But, we didn't feel like their drink prices were worth it once the specials were over. Also, this was the most crowded I felt in any bar that night. Something to see if you... More
